Cancer, evidently. Prayers for his soul. I do not believe he was spiritually healthy. Ayn Rand and suchlike. :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:

I was a huge Rush geek for awhile there, oh, three decades or so ago. I'm surprised how sad this makes me feel.

He gets turned loose a bit on this one at about 2:35. It's not his best playing, but it's probably their most popular song, I reckon.

I like this video a lot. Another popular song, and pretty easy to listen to by Rush standards. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeCczUfCcsU

This one was a gut-punch for me.

While I’m a guitar player, Neil made me want to be a drummer.

This is devastating, not just the death, but the fact that this is the certain end of the band.

Completely saddened by his passing. “The Professor” was an extraordinary talent.

I absolutely love the drum work in this song. I was surprised when Neal said this was the hardest song for him to play.

Also known as “The Professor” and widely considered one of the greatest rock drummers of all time.

I do enjoy the more commercial radio friendly jams, like this one...

I hadn't heard that, and I am surprised, too. I mean, it's super cool, but as a non-drummer I'd have guessed he played harder stuff than this. Though it's been enough years since I was a rock music listener that I can't think of any examples right offhand.

I was never a big Rush purist. I liked their popular stuff as much as or more than their less accessible music. My favorite album as a whole was definitely Permanent Waves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPBinohXHLc

This song is very unique in all of Rock history because of its popularity and at the same time musicianship. While popular, it has an alternating time signature - 3/4 to 4/4 every other measure so 3/4, 4/4, 3/4, 4/4, and etc and one doesn't hear those types of changes often in rock music.

They way they lay the guitar and bass down its not difficult to play - but the drumming is extremely difficult because changing time signatures constantly while keeping the same tempo is difficult - in addition to be able to change every other measure is incredibly difficult.

As a fan I think their most musically "brilliant" song is Freewill. Why? Because the song is about Freewill and during the guitar solo, every instrument seems to be doing its own thing - showing they all have freewill. Yet, they are able to put it all together to make sense - each doing their own thing while each working with the other. But the drumming is the amazing part - the bass isn't helping him to keep things together as you often see in trios. Neil is doing it on his own.

Its musically brilliant - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thMm9GELnck listen at the 3:08 mark for it to start then really kick in at the 3:40 point. Disregard the singing - I picked the live version to show how they pull it off outside the studio.
